*** She's not kidding. Supplementary manga show that when Nanoha was that age, she and Raising Heart used to run combat simulations in Nanoha's subconscious during school, with Nanoha still doing her schoolwork at the same time. For extra challenge, she would even work two equations simultaneously in Math.

* In one chapter of ''Manga/HunterXHunter'', the Grandmaster of the Hunter's Association challenges Gon and Killua to a game of basketball, promising them instant promotion to Hunter status if they manage to get the ball away from him. After a while, Killua notices that the old man is easily thrashing them while hopping around on one foot and only using one hand. Gon eventually claims a moral victory when he forces their opponent to stop holding back quite so obviously.
